GOP Chairwoman Openly Supports GOP Senator Mike Azinger’s opinion piece against the LBGTQ Community
(Charleston, WV)– WVDP Chairwoman Belinda Biafore released the following statement:
“Melody Potter’s praise of Senator Mike Azinger’s remarks against the LGBTQ+ community stands in stark contrast to her condemnation of Delegate Eric Porterfield for his disturbing actions and words against the community earlier in the year. Why? Because she’s telling us how she truly believes.
“It’s clear that when Chairwoman Potter condemned Porterfield’s behavior it was just a carefully crafted statement to save face.
“The fact that the WVGOP falls in line behind Melody Potter and her hate toward the LGBTQ community is truly fearful and something that West Virginians will not stand for.”
